Anjarwalla & Khanna (A&K) Tanzania has taken over the practice of ATZ Law Chambers with the new core leadership team now consisting of Partner, Geofrey Dimoso and Director, Shemane Amin who joined in April and February respectively.

Driven by the firm’s vision to complement its robust local practice with the capability to service clients regionally and in recognition of the value that our clients have gained as a result of our cross-border collaboration with A&K Kenya, these developments will enable the company to strengthen their regional offering by providing greater access to a broader pool of specialist teams and resources.

The law firm’s office address, client engagement terms and operations in our Dar es Salaam office will remain unchanged, but the offering will now be bolstered by the expansion of the leadership team.

In his new role, Mr Dimoso will work closely with the rest of the A&K Tanzania leadership team to ensure that the firm continues to provide exceptional service to clients in Tanzania and the wider region.

With over 15 years of experience in private practice, Dimoso headed the legal department and served as company secretary of the Commercial Bank of Africa (Tanzania), and previously, Azania Bank. Dimoso is a practicing Advocate of the High Court of Tanzania and holds a Master of Laws degree and a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Dar es Salaam.

 He is certified as a director by the Commonwealth Centre for Corporate Governance (Kenya) and the Institute of Directors (Tanzania), and is a member of various professional bodies, including the Tanganyika Law Society and the East African Law Society.

Tasked with managing the firm’s client experience and overseeing operations, Ms. Amin joined A&K Tanzania from Philip Morris where she held a dual management role as the Manager for Corporate Affairs and the Manager for Commercial, Strategy and Planning.

 Prior to that, she worked as a Corporate Advisor at Mohammed Enterprises Tanzania Limited, where she oversaw complex corporate transactions. Ms. Amin started her legal career in the United States, where she worked for law firm Brown Rudnick LLP.

She is a graduate of Boston University School of Law, where she obtained a Juris Doctor degree, after graduating from Duke University with a Bachelor of Arts degree on full scholarship from the Robertson Scholars Program.

The company expressed optimism that the rebranding and entry of the new team members and offering to clients in Tanzania and across Africa will be bolstered.

As the exclusive ALN firm in Tanzania, A&K Tanzania has said it will continue to leverage the alliance’s “one-stop-shop” approach on cross-border matters to provide integrated solutions to support clients in doing business across the continent.
